My creative process involved assembling hundreds of notes I had made over many years while at work. I jotted down many observations over countless days waiting tables. Once I decided to begin the process of creating a book, I collected all the notes and assembled them in a Word document.
From there, I sorted the information by common subject matter. This is where the chapters began to take shape. It was my intention to keep this book concise and to the point, without fluff. Much like how college professors repeat themselves to emphasize important information, I too have done the same in this book to drive home the most important of the guiding principles discussed.
My most inspired moments occur in the morning. It is during that time in between sleep and full wakefulness where the most inspired ideas bloom. I have a large dry erase board in my room so, when inspiration strikes, I can promptly jot down the idea before it drifts back into the ether.
